FS - Yellow Neocaridinas

I've posted this in S&S but I'd rather sell them locally and spare them shipping.







2$ / shrimp, PU in Sunnyside. They are mixed sizes so I'll give a couple extras.

So, no love for these guys ? last time I checked this was a fair price for them, but maybe they are cheaper now - I'll have a look around and see how much they go for.

My yellow Neos are from Patrice. Mine have already berried with offspring coming any day now. They are bright and colorful.

I can vouch for his shrimp, red root floaters and all around great hobbyist.

Nice video. How many frys in there? I read they are mouth brooder, are they big enough to eat crushed flakes or eating brine shrimp when released from the mom? When I was a kid I have a pair of Golden Mbuna and I didn't know what was going on with one of them as she is not eating and I saw something inside her mouth, so I net her out and check it, then I realized she had frys inside her mouth, lol. Unfortunately all died as I didn't know how to take care of them. Good luck.

Ryu1, I'm not sure how many exactly, I would say close to 100. They're not mouth brooders - they hatch in a cave, and come out as soon as they are free swimming - about 2 to 3 days. At that point they swim around the tank in a tight school, herded by the parents. They eat just about anything really, if it's too big the parents chew it into smaller pieces and blow it on the fry. What I do to feed them, is mix golden pearls / ken's food premium growth with a bit of water to make a paste, then freeze it. This makes nice sinking pellets that dissolve once they reach the bottom, so I can just drop them wherever the fry is. They are little hungry monsters !
